Disease relevance of Bone Plates


High impact information on Bone Plates

  • Allogenic bone plates saturated with rhOP-1-collagen putty were used in the OP-1 (OP) group, while plates saturated with autogenous cancellous bone and marrow were used in the bone marrow (BM) group [2].
  • Calvariae cultured for as little as 3 h with monensin revealed intracellular staining for MMPs and TIMP-2 in mesenchymal tissues, as well as in cells lining the bone plates [3].
  • Sections were scored using traditional histopathological scales, and computerized image analysis, measuring total cartilage area, uncalcified cartilage (UCC) and subchondral bone plate (SCP) thickness, and intensity of articular cartilage toluidine blue staining (mean greyscale intensity, black=255) as an index of proteoglycan (PG) content [4].
  • Late degradation tissue response to poly(L-lactide) bone plates and screws [5].
  • Intramedullary nails with polymethylmethacrylate cement, strips of titanium mesh with cement, bone plates with and without cement, and multiple Steinmann pins with cement were the reconstituting configurations [6].

Anatomical context of Bone Plates


Associations of Bone Plates with chemical compounds

  • Hydroxyapatite reinforced poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) and poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) based degradable composite bone plate [8].
  • We hypothesized that incorporation of a cross-linked polypropylene fumarate matrix into polylactide-co-glycolide bone plates may provide an internal molecular network which prevents implant collapse [9].
  • PHBV bone plates with low valerate contents and 15% (w/w) HAp appear to have better mechanical properties than the others [8].
  • Substance P fibers were not identified in the osteocytic lacunae, canaliculi, or the bony lamellae of the haversian systems of the subchondral bone plate, and its extension to the metaphyseal and diaphyseal cortical bone [10].
  • 2 unthreaded titanium plasma sprayed fixtures were installed in such a way that the coronal border of the fixture was flush with the level of the lingual and buccal bone plate [11].

Gene context of Bone Plates

  • The operative treatment of craniosynostosis using bone plate and screw fixation (titanium micro system) [12].
  • This relatively new device enabled the airway to be safeguarded whilst preserving reasonable surgical access for the attachment of Erich arch bars and a four hole osteosynthetic bone plate [13].
  • Longitudinally oriented bone plates of stainless steel adapted to each sternal half after midline sternotomy provide a reinforced construct for transverse wiring [14].
